The following error was encountered:

The link of N/A was to http://cb2.msn.com/N/A


and the link of Footprint 3.0/FPMCP was to http://www.footprint.net/



Any explanation??

hey ! the same thing was happening to my wireless laptop

not all the time, just sometimes. for some time i was quite

pi--ed off with my ISP - bulldog.


but i discovered that from my mum's laptop hotmail was

working and was not from my laptop. so i started investigating

why the error was appearing. simple solution. restart

the DNS CLIENT service in windows 2K/Xp. or flush

the dns cache manually....


closed all internet explorer windows....msn messenger....

then from windows start menu:

START-> RUN -> (type) CMD.EXE (hit enter)

(type) IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS (hit enter)


i think it is something to do with WIFI, and windows

dns cache management, no need to restart the computer

just flush the corrupt dns cache.



While trying to retrieve the URL: N/A


The following error was encountered:


Invalid hostname.
